Paleo Chicken Soup Recipe

Paleo Crockpot Chicken Soup Recipe

I’ve shared several of my favorite paleo soup recipes on the blog in the past. Have you had a chance to try this Paleo seafood soup yet?

Or, this savory Paleo pumpkin soup is popular around the holidays. You could also make it with butternut squash if you prefer.

I’ve been working on a Paleo chicken soup recipe – slow cooker style – since the last thing I want to do when I’m not feeling great is to spend tons of time in the kitchen. It seems as though sickness has invaded our home.  

We are all sniffling, sneezing, coughing, or otherwise not feeling that fantastic.  I really like home remedies for when we aren’t feeling well.

A sore throat gets tea with lemon and honey.  A cold gets chicken noodle soup – or it used to. Since my daughter is gluten intolerant, noodles aren’t a good choice unless they are gluten-free.

Since I’m following the Paleo diet, even gluten-free noodles and rice are out of the picture.  

Paleo Chicken Soup Recipe

Is this Whole30 and Keto?

Yes, this recipe is suitable for both the Whole30 and Keto diets. It works well for any low carb or low calorie diet plan like Weight Watchers.

I try very hard to buy local, organic foods to use when I cook. I like supporting our local economy and I like knowing that the foods we eat really are safe to eat.

That said, I cannot always find everything I want local or organic. Vermont has a very short growing season and limited options for organic food.  When I cannot buy local organic, I choose organic.

If I cannot find local or organic, I try to find all-natural, scrub the heavens out of it or substitute another ingredient. Do the best you can with the options you have.

Paleo chicken noodle soup recipe

I really like crackers with my soup. But, traditional crackers don’t work with the Paleo diet. Thankfully there are Paleo crackers that do. These crackers are Paleo friendly and really good!

How to make a slow cooker chicken soup

Really, it’s quite simple to turn almost any chicken noodle soup into something that’s suitable for the Paleo diet. You just need to remove any of the grains or starches and dairy products. 

What you’re left with is generally chicken and vegetables. Provided you skip things that are carb-heavy like potatoes and corn, you should be all set.

If you want a keto chicken soup recipe, it’s about the same thing. Avoid carbs and processed foods. Start with fresh, minimally processed ingredients.

Can I have chicken broth on Paleo or keto?

You definitely can. For the healthiest option, look for a chicken bone broth rather than a traditional chicken stock or broth when you make this Paleo Crockpot chicken soup.

  17. I am trying to use our slow cooker even more this year, and chicken soup sounds good.  Especially since everyone in the house has either had a bug, a cold, or both in the past week.  Those pearl onions remind me of my Great Gram - she always had my Gram make her boiled onions for Thanksgiving. (Random, I know - sorry! lol)
  18. I'm so obsessed with all of these slow cooker recipes sprouting up. I'm not on the paleo diet but I wouldn't be oposed to adding these ingredients in addition to my noodles. 
  19. This paleo recipe looks so good and easy! I've never used my crockpot to make soup before but with the cold weather, it sounds amazing!
  20. Mmm, this looks SOO  good! I've never added spinach to chicken soup, but that's a great way to up the flavor and the nutrition. :-) Thanks so much for sharing, Ellen, and for linking up with Nomday Monday. I hope you have a blessed day!
  21. Pearl onions are such a great way to add onion flavor into a dish without having such a harsh onion smell (plus no crying while dicing!) I'm going to have to try this sometime. 
  22. I bet this will fight our sickies away! Right now I am sitting at home trying to make sure my temp doesn't rise anymore and my three kids are here too. All sick. Thanks for this recipe.
  23. Slow cooker soups are always welcome around here. Anytime I can have a warm, satisfying meal without too much prep, I'm game! Netflix is the only form of television we have these days, and pairing that with a warm soup on a cold day is a great dinner idea.
  24. Chicken soup is the best when you're sick. Looks delicious, Ellen. Pinned. And Daddy Daycare is such a fun movie; it's been awhile since we watched that; I bet my boys would really like that one. Will have to add to our movie list.
  25. My dad is a big chicken noodle soup fan and since we've butchered our own chickens, we have it constantly in this household! Unfortunately though, he's a gluten noodle fiend; I try to stay away from them the best I can and I think this would be a wonderful recipe to try :D Thank you so much for providing this alternative recipe!
  26. My husband has a bad cold right now (the kiddo and me have both kicked it.) We were JUST talking about how he needs chicken soup, and I have most of these ingredients. Definitely throwing this into our menu rotation this week.
  27. Looks so delicious! I am so excited you have so many Paleo recipes - you will be a great resource! Our family loves The Croods! It's so funny!
  28. Chicken soup is always a winner. I make mine like this except for the pearl onions (And I love pearl onions. ) Definitely trying this out!
  29. I love the look of your soup and I'm sure it's pretty delicious as well. Chicken soup is always great when you're sick. As for movies, daddy daycare is one of my favorites as well. 
  30. This soup looks delicious. It also has everything that I love inside of it! Not to mention it's very healthy. Soup is my go to meal during those chilly nights that I just want to cuddle on the couch with my pups.
  31. This recipe looks clean and fresh. Homemade soup is a treat that families treasure and this one has a very nice appearance.
  32. I've been making more soups than usual this winter for some reason and this sounds like a great one to add to my line up!
  33. My son has school off today for MLK and it is cold outside. This post is a good idea for tonight. . . homemade chicken soup and a Movie on Netflix (Which I just got this month) Maybe we will watch The Croods! FUN. 
  34. Yum!  The chicken looks so juicy and wonderful!  Your pictures make me want a bowl to warm me up on this chilly afternoon.  Thanks for sharing your recipe!
  35. There's something super comforting about a bowl of soup in the wintertime. Sounds delicious, Ellen! You suggested some cute movies too.
  36. I hope you are feeling better. Sickness has invaded at our house too. I tore my pantry apart trying to find a can of chicken soup! I love homemade so much more though. 
  37. Love the ingredients in this recipe!! It looks like we are gonna get colder this week, so it might have to be on the menu for Wednesday or Thursday!! Thanks Ellen for another fabulous recipe!
